When creating a new card on another board, I want all content including custom fields and attachments to populate - is this possible?

CF definitions are unique to each board. The CF name may be the same on 2 boards but they are different custom fields. Unlikely other card variables the prefix trigger eg {triggercardname} cannot be used for custom field. The way around this is to use Trello API to gather the source/trigger card CF in {httpresponse} using the HTTP request.

Thank you so much for your help... however I am not familiar with http requests and programming - can you give an example on what you would write and how to populate inside the automation wizard? Thank you in advance

This is an example of how I used http request to do what you wanted.

when a card is moved into list "Doing", create a new card with title "{triggercardname}" in list "{triggercardlistname}", and post to url "https://<instance url>/attachments/copy_attachment" with payload "{"card_id" : "{triggercardidlong}" , "alt_card_id" : "{newcardidlong}"}"

Sorry mate - I'm a bit of a novice when it comes to Http push/pull code. Where do I find my <instance URL>? Thanks in advance

The instance url refers to a microservice that I had developed. So you would not have it unless you have installed the app.
